The African duo had their scoring boots on in what was an important win for the Eagles

Wilfred Zaha and Jeffrey Schlupp were on target as Crystal Palace beat Burnley 2-0 at Turf Moor in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

The Eagles had been victorious in their last three meetings with the Clarets, including a 3-1 win at this venue back in March.

They got off to a fine start towards the half-time break courtesy of Wilfried Zaha, who buried the ball in from a tight angle on the left after receiving a long ball from centre-back Scott Dann.

The Ivory Coast international was on target against Liverpool last week for the first time this season. He now has consecutive Premier League goals after going 13 matches without finding the back of the net.

Jeffrey Schlupp came on for Andros Townsend in the 70th minute and made it 2-0 for Palace with a lovely strike after Burnley defender Ben Mee made a mess of the ball.

The South London club will host Bournemouth next at Selhurst Park on Tuesday.
